7.22.16 … No pithy quotes for my mom, just the facts …

Driving Mama Lindsey …

On our way to visit Jeanne Reid and her mom Jane in Madison. It’s a beautiful day in Georgia, albeit hot.

Two observations before we arrive:

1. On seeing a tattoo parlor, Mom said that she would like to have a tattoo. I said well what would it say, and she responded, “I would just have my name and emergency info.” No pithy quotes for my mom, just the facts.

2. All states look the same from the interstate.

And then we visited … I loved sharing time and space with Jeanne and her son Alexander.

One final thought from my mom… a good one.

My mother did not technically allow her children to watch shows that portrayed people as idiots. That limited our tv watching to a great extent given it was the 1960s. She especially disliked Gilligan’s Island, Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres and Petticoat Junction. Oddly, Hogan’s Heroes was ok. The Germans could be idiots.
